This melted snowman craft is great simple idea to try with your kids this winter. You can either use our snowman template or create your own.
This melted little guy is a great addition to our snowman crafts.
Does it snow where you live?
We are blessed with a lot of snow here in Minnesota and even if sometimes our winters can last for half a year, my kids have a hard time adapting to the cold and going outside at the beginning of the season.
But once they get used to it, they spent long hours outside playing in the snow, sledding down the hill close to our home or building igloos with their friends. Digging in big piles of snow to make igloos is their favorite thing to do outside.
They aren’t as much interested in building a snowman so I take it upon myself to do it.
No winter without a snowman! 🙂
We have our yearly snowman in the backyard so we can easily keep an eye on it.
If there is no snow where you live and your kids can’t build a snowman, they can still try and make one from paper. This 3D snowman is so cute and easy for all ages. While this snowman has a cardinal on its hat – adorable!
Melted snowman craft
- Melted snowman template
- Craft paper: white, orange, brown, black and another color of your choice

How to make a melted snowman craft
The melted snowman template comes with two versions:
1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
